Alejandro Jodorowsky – Wikipedia
Alejandro Jodorowsky Prullansky Spanish: SinceJodorowsky has worked as a novelist, a storyteller, a poet, a playwright, an essayist, a film director and producer, an actor in cinematic and theatre productions, a theatre director, a screenwriter, a film editor, a comics writera musician and composer, a philosopher, a puppeteera mimea psychologist and psychoanalyst, a draughtsmana painter, a sculptor and a spiritual guru.
Best known for his avant-garde films, he has been “venerated by cult cinema enthusiasts” for his work which “is filled with violently surreal images and a hybrid blend of mysticism and religious provocation”. Born to Jewish-Ukrainian parents in ChileJodorowsky experienced an unhappy and alienated childhood, and so immersed himself in reading and writing poetry.
Dropping out of college, he became involved in theater and in particular mime, working as a clown before founding his own theater troupe, the Teatro Mimicoin From he divided his time between Paris and Mexico Cityin the former becoming a founding member of the anarchistic avant-garde Panic Movement of performance artists.
In he created his first comic strip, Anibal 5while in he directed his first feature film, the surrealist Fando y Liswhich caused a huge scandal in Mexicoeventually being banned. The result was The Holy Mountaina surrealist exploration of western esotericism.
Disagreements with Klein, however, led to both The Holy Mountain and El Topo failing to gain widespread distribution, although both became classics on the underground film circuit. After an aborted attempt at filming Frank Herbert ‘s science fiction novel DuneJodorowsky produced five more films: During the same period, he wrote a series of science fiction comic books, most notably The Incal — mugamos, which has been described as having a claim to be “the best comic book” ever written,  and also The Technopriests and Metabarons.
He has also written books and regularly lectures on his own spiritual system, which he calls “psychomagic” and “psychoshamanism” and which borrows from his interests in alchemythe tarotZen Buddhism and shamanism.
Jodorowsky jodorwsky born in in the coastal town of TocopillaChile, to parents who were Jewish immigrants from Yekaterinoslav now DniproElisavetgrad now Kropyvnytskyi and other cities of the Russian Empire now Ukraine.
El Juego Que Todos Jugamos
His father, Jaime Jodorowsky Groismann, was a merchant,  who was largely abusive to his wife Sara Felicidad Prullansky Arcavi, and at one time accused her of flirting with a customer. Angered, he subsequently beat and raped her, getting her pregnant, which led to the birth of Alejandro. Because of this brutal conception, Sara both hated her husband and disliked her son, telling him that “I cannot love you” and rarely showing him tenderness.
Nonetheless he liked his local area, and was greatly unhappy when he was forced to leave it aged nine years old, something for which he blamed his father. After dropping out, and having an interest in theatre and particularly mimehe took up employment as a clown in a circus and began a career as a theatre director.
Nonetheless, Jodorowsky felt that there was little for him left in Chile, and so that year he moved to Paris, France. It was with Marceau’s troupe that he went on a world tour, and wrote several routines for the group, including “The Cage” and “The Mask Maker”. After this, he returned to theatre directing, working on the music hall comeback of Maurice Chevalier in Paris. It consisted almost entirely of mime, and told the surreal story of a head-swapping merchant who helps a young man find courtship success.
Jodorowsky played the lead role. The director Jean Cocteau admired the film, and wrote an introduction for it. It was considered lost until a print of the film was discovered in InJodorowsky moved to Mexico, where he settled down in Mexico City. The movement aimed to go beyond the conventional surrealist ideas by embracing absurdism. Its members refused to take themselves seriously, while laughing at those critics who did.
The following year he created a new feature film, Fando y Lis loosely based on a play written by Fernando Arrabalwho was working with Jodorowsky on performance art at the time. Fando y Lis premiered at the Acapulco Film Festival, where it instigated a riot amongst those objecting to the film’s content,  and subsequently it was banned in Mexico. Jodorowsky became a disciple of Takata and offered his own house to be turned into a zendo. Subsequently, Takata attracted other disciples around him, who spent their time in meditation and the study of koans.
InJodorowsky released the film El Topowhich sometimes is known in English as The Mole which he had both directed and starred in. An acid westernEl Topo tells the story of a wandering Mexican bandit and gunslingerEl Topo played by Jodorowskywho is on a search for spiritual enlightenment, taking his young son along with him.
Along the way, he violently confronts a number of other individuals, before finally being killed and being resurrected to live within a community of deformed people who are trapped inside a mountain cave.
Describing the work, he stated that “I ask of film what most North Americans ask of psychedelic drugs. The difference being that when one creates a psychedelic film, he need not create a film that shows the visions of a person who has taken a pill; rather, he needs to manufacture the pill.
It attracted the attention of rock musician and countercultural figure John Lennonwho thought very highly of it, and convinced the president of The Beatles ‘ company Apple CorpsAllen Kleinto distribute it in the United States.
The result was The Holy Mountainreleased in The Holy Mountain was another complex, multi-part story that featured a man credited as “The Thief” and equated with Jesus Christ, a mystical alchemist played by Jodorowsky, seven powerful business people representing seven of the planets Venus and the six planets from Mars to Plutoa religious training regimen of spiritual rebirth, and a quest to the top of a holy mountain for the secret of immortality.
During the completion of The Holy MountainJodorowsky received spiritual training from Oscar Ichazo of the Arica Schoolwho encouraged him to take LSD and guided him through the subsequent psychedelic experience. Klein had promised this adaptation to various investors. Jodorowsky, who had discovered feminism during the filming of The Holy Mountainrefused to make the film, going so far as to leave the country to escape directing duties. In retaliation, Allen Klein made El Topo and The Holy Mountainto which he held the rights, completely unavailable to the public for more than 30 years.
Jodorowsky frequently decried Klein’s actions in interviews. Soon after the release of The Holy MountainJodorowsky gave a talk at the Teatro Julio CastilloUniversity of Mexico on the subject of koans despite the fact that he initially had been booked on the condition that his talk would be about cinematographyat which Ejo Takata appeared. After the talk, Takata gave Jodorowsky his kyosakubelieving that his former student had mastered the art of understanding koans.
In Decembera French consortium led by Jean-Paul Gibon purchased the film rights to Frank Herbert ‘s epic science fiction novel Dune and asked Jodorowsky to direct a film version. The music would be composed by Pink Floyd and Magma. The production for the film collapsed when no film studio could be found willing to fund the movie to Jodorowsky’s terms.
The aborted production was chronicled in the documentary Jodorowsky’s Dune. Subsequently, the rights for filming were sold to Dino de Laurentiiswho employed the American filmmaker David Lynch to direct, creating the film Dune in After the collapse of the Dune project, Jodorowsky completely changed course and, inpremiered his children’s fable Tuskshot in India.
Taken from Reginald Campbell ‘s novel Poo Lorn of the Elephantsthe film explores the soul-mate relationship between a young British woman living in India and a highly prized elephant. The film exhibited little of the director’s outlandish visual jueggo and was never given wide release.
InJodorowsky divorced his wife.
The film received limited theatrical distribution, putting Juyamos back on the cultural map despite its mixed critical reviews. Tosos featured a protagonist who, as a child, saw his mother lose both her arms, and as an adult let his own arms act as hers, and so was forced to commit murders at her whim. Several of Jodorowsky’s sons were recruited as actors. He followed in with a very different film, The Rainbow Thief. That same yearJodorowsky and his family returned to France to live.
InAlejandro’s son, Jodorowsoy, died in an accident while his father was busy preparing for a trip to Mexico City to promote his new book. Upon arriving in Mexico City, he gave a lecture at the Julio Castillo Theatre where he once again met Ejo Takata, who at this time had moved into a poor suburb of the city where he had continued to teach meditation and Zen. Takata would die two years later, and Jodorowsky would never jubamos to see his old friend again. Jodorowsky attended the festival and his films were shown, including El Topo and The Holy Mountainwhich at the time had grey legal status.
According to festival director Bryan Wendorfit was an open question jugamoos whether CUFF would be allowed to show both films, or whether the jygamos would show up and jodofowsky the festival down.
Notably, Fando y Lis and La cravate were digitally restored extensively and remastered in London during latethus providing the perfect complement to the quality restoration work undertaken on El Topo and The Holy Mountain qie the States by Abkco, and ensuring that the presentation of Fando y Lis is a significant improvement over the Fantoma DVD edition.
Prior to the joddorowsky of these legitimate releases, only inferior quality, optically censored, bootleg copies of both El Topo and The Holy Mountain have been circulated on the Internet and on DVD.
In the s and early s, Jodorowsky attempted to make a sequel to El Topocalled at different times The Sons of El Topo and Abel Cainbut could not find investors for the project. In an interview with Premiere MagazineJodorowsky said he intended his next project to be a gangster film called King Shot.

Psychogenealogy includes the studying of the patient’s personality and family tree in order to best address their specific sources. It is similar, in its phenomenological approach to genealogy, to the Constellations pioneered by Bert Hellinger.
